if individuals needed an incredible opportunity to be employed in our city and he was also looking for organization to fund that were doing good work he did a lot for glide church in the tenderloin and it was in his heart he didn't do it base the community pressured him or to push for that that wasn't his job area but ups is an incredible partner in san francisco because of jerry lee there's a huge void a huge void we'll see in his passing and leadership i will really miss his heart the most he - was so sincere and dedicated in his mission to make sure that everyone could enjoy the opportunities and privileges

>> bonnie banks. bonnie banks. my definition of noise is uncontrolled music. without format. pretty simple affair. pancakes, and you're -- people get up on sundays around noon, weekends or whatever. should not be too hard to walk into place. have your audio alarm clock go off for two hours waking your up while you are eating breakfast with many interesting visuals once in a while. improvisation.
listening or not to the person you're playing up against or people or machines. trying to get as many different people in as possible. different genres experimental noise electronics, dissonance some drums.a tiny bit of ambient -- the first noise pancake shows, 1999 the first waffle noise, 2001. god-waffle noise noise pancake came out of cubist art, place on mission street, brutallo

if you travel around you will see the exact same kind of weirdos doing their own thing. it is like in the bay area it's even more absurd. there seems to be more people that in a place like new york or tokyo. we did a show in new york, i didn't think that anyone was at hardly, and people come up and said i saw the show. i wish they had some kind of breakfast noise going on over there. i think a lot of people were being, walking out of the shows. that was incredible. i can't believe it's over already, after two hours. if you are reluctant to enjoy something like this it will probably take a mass
